2002 BMW 745i


  • MOT’d and ready to drive
  • Top spec model 
  • Only five owners from new

The Appeal

The BMW 745i was a car far ahead of its time. 

Using BMW's new i-drive system it offered drivers a fine introduction to the digital systems with which we are all now familiar. 

But the 745i offered much more than a cutting edge infotainment system; the big V8 up front pushes 325 hp to the rear wheels and combined with a great chassis and innovative driving technology such as the automatic hydraulically controlled anti roll bar the 745i is a fantastic car to drive. 

Going from 0-60 in 6 seconds in ultimate comfort and devouring corners like a car half its weight, it makes for a hard to beat driving experience. 

The History and Paperwork

  • MOT until March 2023
  • A selection of historic MOTs
  • Original owners manuals
  • V5 present

The Interior

  • Good condition overall
  • Exceptionally well appointed interior with a superb level of comfort and finish
  • Everything works exactly as it should
  • Dashboard wooden trim and instruments are all in good condition
  • The driver's seat shows heavy signs of wear, but is free from splits and tears
  • Door cards and carpets are both in good condition
  • The headlining has begun to sag in a few placed but is otherwise good

Sliding in behind the wheel of this big luxury cruiser you can instantly feel the quality of this big BMW. 

With the opulent wooden trim, deep fully electric (both heating and adjustment) seats, an enclosed cockpit and extensive soundproofing this car provides a high level of driving comfort and luxury. 

Looking down the long bonnet gives some hint of the other side of this car; you know that there is a big V8 hiding just underneath. 

The interior of the 745i has a huge array of switches and controls, and the level to which you can customise your driving experience is outstanding for a car of this period. 

It also features a DVD player (mounted in the boot), sat-nav and a BMW branded car phone. 

The Exterior

  • Fair condition overall
  • Wheels show significant signs of wear
  • Four good tyres
  • Paintwork generally in good condition with some imperfections 

The 745i is a big imposing car with classic BMW styling and creates a strong impression wherever it goes. 

Finished in black with large silver BMW alloy wheels and tinted windows it’s a fantastic looking car. 

The wheels could do with some refurbishment and the paintwork does have some small stone chips on the front, however these details are only apparent on closer viewing; the car still looks good and can be counted on to make an impression.

The Mechanics

  • MOT until March 2023
  • Starts easily and runs well
  • The owner reports that it drives exactly as it should
  • No unusual or unwanted noises

The big V8 springs to life easily and idles very quietly, in day to day driving the car is smooth and quiet, but put your foot down and the engine sounds fantastic. 

The current owner reports that the car drives perfectly with no issues. With MOT until March 2023 this 745i is ready for the road.


This 745i provides a fantastic level of luxury coupled with fantastic German build quality and the raw performance that makes BMWs so good to drive.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are Commission bids?

A commission bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
